In Case of an Emergency, Ensure You Are Signed Up
The safety of Johns Hopkins faculty members, staff members and students is one of our primary concerns, and CEPAR wants everyone to be aware of any pending or actual disasters or safety threats on campus.
The Johns Hopkins Emergency Alert System is the emergency notification system used across the enterprise in the event of any pending or actual disasters, emergencies or safety threats on or near the campus. The alert system is the best way to find out about emergencies on our campuses — whether at The Johns Hopkins University or Johns Hopkins Medicine — and to ensure everyone moves to a safe place or evacuates the impacted area. The emergency alert system is managed by corporate security at the respective campuses. When an emergency occurs, text alerts are sent to the cellphones of faculty, staff and students.
CEPAR encourages faculty, staff and students to sign up for emergency alerts by visiting your profile on my.jh.edu. Please also ensure your contact information is current.
When you receive an alert, the best advice is to remain calm. The alert message will often include recommended next steps. It may be necessary to evacuate the area or stay away from the area of the noted incident. Remember to continue to monitor follow-up alerts, and always report any suspicious activity you witness to Johns Hopkins Corporate Security or, if off-campus, to local authorities.
